The Ward



John Carpenterís return to horror in 9 years is just a flat, been there, done that, with minor twist at the end hoping to regain credibility. Itís filled with jump scares and darkly lit hallways. While the acting was pretty good, the story was not engaging. Half hour into, I was debating turning it off. I should have. The rest of the movie remained mediocre at best.

Our Idiot Brother



I really enjoy watching Paul Rudd. Like Ryan Reynolds, they both have an aura about them that just make me laugh. Our Idiot Brother though shows Rudd in a new dimension and itís not all that interesting. My wife found this charming and somewhat funny. I can kind of see the charm, but I see this more as a Lifetime movie. There was very little idiot, very little humor and just a flat movie. In a nutshell, Rudd is a carefree dude and that contrasts highly with his familyís chaotic, problematic family. Which then blame idiot brother, which then leads to an mile long obvious 3rd act of everybody realizing the truth.
Believe in Yourself
Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
